Buy a newer faster one. That will make it faster.

Really depends what hardware you have.

No offense, but your query is far too vague to answer without wasting time on speculation as to the source and background off your issue.

This is very much dependent on why your system has slowed down:

Without inspecting it No one is going to be more than general.

If you want a sure fire way to get it back to how it was (assuming it has become slow) then save all your important data - format the hard drive and reload windows.

NOTE if your not sure get someone who knows to do this for you as you might loose something important.

If you just want to speed things up - Then look at your memory you need at least 4 Gig to get Win 7 / 8 running well, more up to a point can be better.

BUT that depends if you have a 64 bit win 7/8 with 32 bit software you may be struggling anyway.

If you don't know much about your system and your question suggests that then your better off getting someone who really know to look at it (not just a mate who might know)
